Côr Ger y Ffin is a recently formed mixed choir, and one that was established for a reality programme called “Codi Canu”, by S4C. New choirs had to be formed for this under the baton of Welsh celebrities linked with their area and who incidentally had to be taught to conduct! Our celebrity and inexperienced conductor in the Codi Canu competition in 2010 was Mr. Stifyn Parry, and his mentor was Mr. Geraint Roberts. Mr. Stifyn Parry is the talented entertainer who established the company 'Mr Producer'. Stifyn continues his association with us and Mr. Geraint Roberts is now our Musical Director. The television series followed the preparations required for four newly formed choirs. To our delight the culmination of this was winning the 2010 Codi Canu challenge in Cardiff, which was initially set by Mr. Owain Arwel Hughes.
The members enjoyed themselves to such a degree that they requested Mr. Geraint Roberts to continue with this Choir as Musical Director. By now we have a varied repertoire, including Welsh, English, and some Latin. Most is for four part voices.
Our repertoire covers a wide range of musical styles, from classical choral works, traditional Welsh songs to modern composers.
If you are looking for a choir to perform at your event or concert, we would be very pleased to hear from you.
